We Need You for Voter Protection (click here for more info)

Help Protect Our Elections!

The Democratic Executive Committee of Sumter County is looking for volunteers to serve as Poll Watchers (inside) and Poll Observers (outside) for the upcoming August election in Sumter County. As a poll volunteer, you watch and make sure voters are able to vote. Both jobs are primarily sitting. Don’t worry! Not many problems have occurred in the past, and we are doing a lot to keep issues from happening.

In person trainings have been scheduled for July 8, 11, 16, 20 and will take place at our headquarters. We are also planning to video tape the training.

Early voting will be from Saturday, August 10th through Saturday, August 17th, and August Election Day is Tuesday, August 20th. Shifts during Early Voting are 3 hours long, and on Election Day, they are 4 hours long. So far, we have about 30% of the 513 shifts covered for the August Election. The biggest need is on Election Day as there are more polling locations. August is a practice run for November.
